>> chris: it's 11:59 and 59 seconds. this happened on twitter! tonight was barack obama's final state of the union address. he announced it on twitter with this glamour shot oh ya, that's a michael album cover. oh perfect. like a 70s aftershave ad or something. get ready for sensual gun control legislation from barack obamble. if you guys haven't heard the --d but the weirdest piece of media associated with the address is this "comedy" video made by cnn called "the state of the union as a wes anderson film": i will take you there now.

[laughing] >> all of the christopher know lan state of the unions never existed. >> quentin tarantino would give us more shots of the president's feet we have ever seen before but the same mount of "n" words
from the opposition over the last eight years. >> chris: it's time to start at midnight! >> chris: welcome to @midnight. i'm chris hardwick. tonight is tag team tuesday! presented by monster dna! tonight's comedians are playing for three lucky followers of the @midnight twitter account, and the winning tag team partner will receive a pair of limited edition @midnight monster dna headphones!
